A look at how Florida would handle a recount
Polls consistently show the contest between Scott and Crist tied, but if that sticks voting officials insist a recount would not be a replay of 2000, when the presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore was not decided until 36 days later as both sides battled in the courts over the state’s results.
The U.S. Supreme Court halted an ongoing recount and Bush won Florida and the presidency by 537 votes!
There’s a chance that Florida’s bitter and expensive governor’s race between incumbent Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic challenger Charlie Crist could trigger a recount a word that sends shudders through the state.
